Well, the process of getting into college has recently become for me something that's very, very real. I'm currently a junior in high school, and this morning I took the SAT for the second and last time. At school, I'm working on a preliminary list of colleges with my college counselor. I've already visited several colleges, and my school hosted its college fair last Monday. Of course, the work, in general, never seems to stop. I've had a year full of ups and downs, as they say. Oh! and AP week starts on Monday.
Anyway, how was your experience with applying to college? Is there anything you wish you had done differently? How do you think the college process has changed since you were in high school (regardless of how long ago that may have been)? What about your experience observing your peers/etc "grappling" with the college process? A lot of questions, but I thought this would be a good way to generate some interesting discussion (especially coming back from my long FORT hiatus ), and I'm sure some of that discussion is relevant to other younger FORT members.
